I'll be impressed if they build a bridge from Shanghai to SF.

It was on ABC news tonight. It's happening in CA, AK, and NY. It's not Americans who are doing the work. There was video of Chinese workers performing the work on ABC national television tonight.

They said that these companies refused a certain percentage of federal funds so that they wouldn't have to comply with the "made in America" part of it, and could hire workers at slave labor wages.

I've written congress and complained. This is pathetic, imo.

Probably won't help; members of Congress don't build stuff very well. That's why they're politicians - no actual skills needed.

every single official in the government should be replaced..both federal and state. it's beginning to look obvious that officials sitting in power are just looking out for themselves.

We need to go back to a part time Congress. Pay needs to be a strict stipend, of the most frugal sort.
